Pantani Arte, Tuscan generations of Handicraft.

Nowadays handicraft tradition in San Gimignano, Tuscany

We have been running a family-owned business in the field of art and wooden craftwork for over eighty years.

In the mid-Thirties Gino Pantani, aged just ten, started to do his apprenticeship in a carpentry workshop in San Gimignano.
In the Fifties he founded his own workshop, that became an

exclusive business whose wooden pieces of furniture were sold all over the world. Later on he specialized in the production of frameworks and canvas for painting.

80 years of experience in the tuscan handicraft - San Gimignano Siena

Nowadays the family tradition is handed over by his sons Alessandro and Massimo, who take care of the creative side, while his daughter Paola takes care of commercial and logistic aspects.

What we create.

In these times of mass production, we aim at quality and we produce unique and original objects.

The studio and the shop

In our workshop, in a peaceful secondary street of the historical centre, a bit out of the main tourist itineraries, we create artistic picture frames, decorative pieces and wooden sculptures, innovative objects following the best Italian traditional techniques.
In our store, which is located in the main street of the city centre, we offer a large choice of oil paintings, original watercolours, hand-coloured printings: all works we have created and selected according to fine quality criteria.

To be mentioned in particular our printings from the original watercolours painted by Massimo Pantani, who originally depicts the story of Pinocchio, the wooden puppet from the well-known novel written by the Tuscan writer Carlo Collodi in the late nineteenth century.

Wood Wall Art

The original sculptures by Alessandro Pantani are also very interesting and worth a mention. His panels, made of recycled wood, are inlaid landscapes of houses and castles, towers and hilltop towns, scenic miniatures inspired by the Tuscan landscapes.
